But the also claimed that the police were not cooperating.

The mother-in-law said that the suspected that she was murdered perhaps due to a political reason. "She had gone out. We cannot say what happened there. She never mentioned any kind of illness. She was completely healthy when she home. Even when the call came on Monday, she did not mention she was not feeling well," Gomti Devi said.

Rukesh said, "On Monday, I had a talk with her over the phone. She asked me to call using WhatsApp where she would tell me something. Then I asked what happened; she said she was scared, that she was very tense. 'There's a lot going wrong with me here. If you ask, I will tell you after coming home.'

Rukesh said she was ill too and hence did not continue with the conversation, but the sisters did end up talking thrice between 9 and 10 at night. "We cannot believe that she had had a heart attack. I suspect a conspiracy. There should be a CBI inquiry," Rukesh said.
